Exhibits Shop Assistant: Help create Science Center exhibits!


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


601 Light StreetBaltimore, MD 21230



Did you know that many of our amazing, hands-on exhibits are created in the basement of the Maryland Science Center? Our shop is almost always busy and, therefore, we can usually use extra hands!

This opportunity is suitable for high school volunteers and older, or groups of volunteers looking for a one-day project. (But please keep in mind there is no guarantee a job will be available when you are.)

  • Help keep the shop clean and organized
  • Perform finishing tasks, as needed: sanding, filling, painting and clearcoating
  • Sharpening and maintaining tools
Required Skills:
  • Some experience with hands-on, detail-oriented work, whether it’s art, woodworking, cake-making, or gardening
  • Eagerness to get your hands dirty and learning
  • Shop orientation and project guidelines provided by Exhibit Fabrication Team
  • Opportunities to volunteer usually occur between the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday-Friday. At least one 4-hour shifts is required a month, for a minimum of three months for individual volunteers. Group volunteering is considered on a case-by-case basis; there's not always a job available when the group is!

Please visit marylandsciencecenter.org for further information and application forms. All volunteers must submit an application, and volunteer appointments are by interview only. All applicants (over the age of 18) must complete a background check and orientation session, prior to volunteering.
